The Titirangi Mt. Everest Challenge is a seven week event where people of all ages walk, run or cycle up Titirangi (Kaiti Hill) 68 times, which is equal to the height of Mount Everest. You can do it solo or as part of a team to help motivate each other.
Every year, the event turns the Titirangi Domain into a hub of activity during the spring months of September and October, with many enjoying both the physical benefits and social interaction of being on the hill during this time.
This year's challenge aims to raise funds for Bowel Cancer sufferers in Tairawhiti.
Bowel Cancer is the second most diagnosed cancer in New Zealand! All donations raised from this challenge go to Gisborne East Coast Cancer Society. They will ensure this money is used for people fighting bowel cancer.
